Here's the Top-16 of the Finnish "Hot"-list. Note that out of these, five are metabloggers that talk mostly about other bloggers, one is essentially a sex blog, and the rest are knitting or other craft blogs.
It strongly suggests that people are interested in the three basic things in life: a) themselves, b) sex, and c) crafts. In the future, few will care about the good writers, the ones with something to say, the budding journalists, the politicians. It's gonna be just people gossiping about other people - and porn. And probably, in the future, gossiping about porn. I guess that's because our vulgar interests are the same, but our finer interests are different. It's easy to get on the top of any lists by throwing controversial subjects on the table, because there is a small narcist and a tiny voyeurist in everyone.
But at least y'all will be warm.

CommentsDon't forget that the hotness formula was devised by Sami, so it's fair to say that he is into himself, sex and crafts.

In the future?
Well, since things were always better in the past, they must be worse in the future. Therefore it is sensible to assume that now at least some people have a brain. :-)
You always did have that special brand of optimism. =)
